Deleting Features using a delete button for multiple feature layers

Question asked by ipeebles on Oct 1, 2013

I have a simple application set up where the user must use a button to activate delete features.  If the button is checked, the user can left click on the feature and delete.  If the button is unchecked, the user cannot delete features using the left mouse click.  The problem is, that I have multiple feature layers within the application and I want to be able to delete features from each feature layer.  Currently, I can only delete from one feature layer.

How can I delete features from each feature layer using the same button?

Here is my current application code:
